Kat Danser and Morgan Davis at The Park Town

February 27, 2014 @ 8:00 pm

Kat Danser’s music navigates a paddle steamer from the muddy banks of the Mississippi Delta downriver toward a big ol’ full moon over New Orleans. Dubbed ‘Queen of the Swamp Blues’, this Edmonton-based guitarist, songwriter, and vocalist channels the spirit of pioneers of roots, blues and spiritual music.

For nearly four decades Morgan Davis has been on the road travelling across Canada, the United States and Europe. His performances draw from a rich tradition of country blues, as well as his own contemporary songs infused with wit and a large dose of humour.

Over the years he has had the privilege of opening for Willie Dixon, John Lee Hooker, Albert King, John Hammond, Albert Collins, and Eric Bibb. (Morgan cites backing Dr.John as a highlight of his career). Morgan has also shared the stage with a who’s who of great blues artists over the years: Colin Linden – who produced his second album, James Cotton, Huber Sumlin, Sunnyland Slim, Snooky Prior, James Harmon, Gene Taylor, Dutch Mason, Gene Taylor, Sue Foley, Ray Bonneville, Carlos DelJunco and many others.
